If you love great audio, a dedicated music streamer is essential, especially if you’ve shunned your CD collection in favour of music stored on a hard drive. A great and easy to use music streamer can become the centre of your hi-fi system, making every listening session that much more enjoyable. A music streamer is a device that has the ability to play audio stored in another location and can be controlled via your smartphone or tablet. Music playback can be over the Internet, via a streaming service like Spotify or Tidal, or from a networked or external hard drive. Life Style Store carry music streamers from entry level brands such as Sonos, Heos, Control4 and Bose through to premium solutions from Audiophile brands such as Cambridge Audio, Marantz, McIntosh, Moon, Bluesound and others. Most of these streamers can be integrated as part of a whole home system for streaming different music sources to different rooms.
To take your music streaming experience to another level consider adding a music streaming unit such as a Roon Nucleus. In the transition from physical to digital media, something has been lost. We have more convenience than ever when it comes to music in our homes, but we have lost the feeling of excitement or engagement. Whilst vinyl helps restore this for many clients, there hasn’t been a solution for digital formats. Roon looks at your music and finds photos, bios, reviews, lyrics, and concert dates, and makes connections between artists, composers, performers, conductors, and producers. What you get is a searchable, surfable magazine about your music. Roon also detects your different types of audio playback devices and streams the optimal audio resolution to each of them so you can enjoy your music instead of managing your audio equipment.
